  • YUM!!! You absolutely must try this recipe - so delish!!! I had a couple substitutions due to missing ingredients on hand: hot homemade chunky salsa substituted for chillies and tomatoes; ground ginger subbed for fresh; chicken broth subbed for veg broth; and celery subbed for red pepper. - 2/21/11
